GSDRC: Economic Benefits of Disability-Inclusive Development

A disability-inclusive approach to development seeks to include people with disability in the development process by "recognizing their potential, valuing and respecting their contributions and perspectives, honoring their dignity, and effectively responding to their needs" | Published by Governance and Social Development Resource Center | September 2012 | Author: Oliver Walton

The economic benefits of adopting a disability-inclusive approach to development are widely acknowledged in the literature as being significant. The literature also recognises, however, that these benefits are complex and difficult to quantify. This report provides an overview of the literature on the economic benefits of adopting a disability-inclusive approach to development. It also provides examples of good practice in the area of disability-inclusive development, with a particular focus on examples that demonstrate the economic benefits of adopting this approach.
